getting a handle on the deficit. also president obama has been hammering away at romney's tax plan arguing it will add to the deficit. romney has called for cutting all tax rates by 20%. he also wants to eliminate taxes on capital gains and dividends for families who make less than $200,000. there was an independent analysis done by the nonpartisan tax policy center and it did find that romney's plan would drop tax revenues by $5 trillion. but romney has promised he won't add to the deficit because he'll pay for any tax cuts by limiting deductions for taxpayers especially the wealthy. so this isn't really a major break from what he said before. he's just kind of shifting the emphasis, playing up a different part of his plan. >> so deductions. what deductions would mr. romney limit? >> now, that is the $5 trillion question. we tonigdon't know. he has hinted he may scale back the mortgage deduction for wealthy homeowners. think about how many tax deductions are out there. charitable giving, he state and local taxes. it won't be politically easy to scrap any of them because they're popular. s

with the numbers saying how, you know, it's a moral obligation to reduce the deficit, just ask 'em, well, explain us how the numbers work. because they don't. they don't have a deficit reduction plan. they have a deficit expansion plan. [cheers and applause] >> reporter: now, this morning governor romney jumped on those new gdp figures, said it reinforces his charge that this country cannot afford another four years of president obama and that his five-point plan for is the right prescription for this country. this is what he said. >> those five things i describe will get america's economy going again, will help people find jobs that need those jobs, will get take-home pay to come up again. this is not a mystery. we know how to do it, america has faced challenges before. when we have strong leaders, when we have people who know how to lead and where to get it -- we can get it done. and i am and we will. >> reporter: governor romney looking more toward the future and what this country would be like under a romney administration, making this as much about a choice as it has been so far about a refe
